In addition, unlike a bicycle, there is no need to straddle or plow, so anyone can ride safely and easily, and it is attracting attention as a means of traveling to a short distance that takes about 10-15 minutes on foot.

▲ Test drive event at Yoichi Takahashi Cup held on September 7, 2019 * This is running on private land. In addition, the electric kickboard falls under the law and corresponds to a motorbike. On public roads, it is necessary to comply with laws and regulations such as wearing a helmet. Comment from Daiki Okai, Representative of Luup Inc. Small and electric mobility like an electric kickboard is a next-generation vehicle with new possibilities that anyone can easily ride. It solves the problems associated with traveling a short distance of about 1 to 3 km and has the potential to make the travel itself enjoyable. By introducing the LUUP electric kickboard to Seven Hundred Club this time, I would be very pleased if the “fun” that goes beyond the convenience of the electric kickboard is conveyed to users. In addition, while electric kickboards are becoming more widespread throughout the world, it is not clear what form of implementation is safest and desirable in Japanese society. As a result of the introduction to Seven Hundred Clubs, citizens can experience the convenience and safety of electric kickboards on vast private land and collect “user feedback” for implementation in Japanese society. I hope that will progress. Comment from Tadahiro Kobayashi, representative of Seven Hundred Club For those who want to offer customers a variety of services and experiences, we are confident that Luup’s electric kickboard will provide new value that can be enjoyed by both adults and children. I hope it will be a new opportunity to enjoy playing and experiencing golf. While operating golf courses while considering the needs and requirements of the next generation, I hope that this will be an opportunity to visit the golf course. In the future, I would like to introduce an electric kickboard more suitable for golf course use in cooperation with Luup. Company Profile
